The Montclair Hawk Watch is Open

The New Jersey Audubon Society will be holding an Open House at the Montclair Hawk Lookout on Sunday, September 17 from 10am to 5pm. If you can’t make it to the Open House, the Lookout is open to the public from September through November each year. The height of the migration of Broad-winged Hawks is usually between September 14 and September 25. October is the month to see the greatest number of hawk species.

The following directions are from their website: To reach the Montclair Hawk Watch from the Garden State Parkway in Bloomfield, take exit 151 for Watchung Avenue and head west on Watchung to its end at Upper Mountain Avenue in Montclair, about 2.1 miles. Make a right turn and go north on Upper Mountain 0.7 miles to Bradford Avenue. Make a left turn and go up Bradford 0.1 miles to Edgecliff Road and make a right turn. Go up Edgecliff 0.2 miles and park on the shoulder (to avoid parking problems, please park well off the side of the road). The lookout path is on the south side of the road. MAP
